I've never really enjoyed cake. It's just too sweet with too much frosting! Ever since I can remember, I've always gotten candles in a pie for my birthday, whether it was apple, banana cream or blackberry. As I was looking at the calendar, I realized that next week is National Pie Day! It would be an understatement to say that I got excited. I could not stop thinking about going to Mom's Apple Pie in Downtown Leesburg for breakfast, lunch and dinner. However, when asking all of my friends and coworkers what we should get, everyone had a different favorite pie. It got me thinking about what your choice of pie says about you, so I did a little research. When you're celebrating with friends and family for this wonderful holiday next week and they ask "Why did you get this kind of pie from Mom's Apple Pie?" you'll have an answer:
Apple pie is an American classic. It's always the first pie tin empty on the 4th of July. Those that like Apple Pie are the epitome of that traditional and heroic image. Apple pie lovers like to keep things simple and are grounded in their ways, but are also very thoughtful. When you picture someone baking a pie and putting it on the window sill, isn't it always a delicious homemade apple pie?
Kind. Joyous. Loving. There are only a few words that come to mind when thinking about that certain someone who loves pecan pie. And I'm not just saying that because it's one of my favorites :) Pecan Pie enthusiasts enjoy it because it is as sweet as they are. The ones that you seem to go to when you need a smile are always eating a nice slice of pecan pie.
Cherry Pie people are looking to go on an adventure. Do you know how hard it is to make a cherry pie? I did it once and swore I would never do it again. Your hands deep in cherries and juice while trying to pick out all of the pits just to get one pie made! Those who like cherry pie (and are willing to do what it takes to get it) are the kinds of people that don't mind getting their hands dirty.
Polar opposite from cherry. Blueberry pie is very easy to make. There's no pitting or worrying about seeds. You just gently put the filling in, top it off with crust and slide it into the oven. This just shows that fanatics of blueberry pie are easygoing and laid back. They are as warm and comforting as that first bite.
Very similar to apple pie, pumpkin pie is a classic. There's not much more you need to finish off a holiday meal with family and friends. And just like the pie, pumpkin pie lovers are classic and comfortable. They are as relaxed as you are while you're enjoying your favorite dessert.
Luckily, all of these favorites are made at Mom's Apple Pie. Mom's Apple Pie has become the go-to dessert place in Loudoun. They have the very best natural preservative-free pies and go to great lengths to grow as much of their own quality fruit as possible, such as strawberries, rhubarb, raspberries, blackberries and pumpkins. With hardly any sugar added, you can really enjoy the natural flavor of these delicious hand-made pies. I'll see you there for National Pie Day!
